Snakes and Other Reptiles

This book is all about reptiles. It is non fiction. Reptiles are snakes and turtles and lizards. Snakes come in all different colors like a rainbow. Turtles have shells but not lizards or snakes, but a snake does not have legs like a turtle or lizard. Lizards and snakes could have stripes but not turtles. You can have a lizard or a turtle as a pet but not snakes because some are poisonous and some are mean. Snakes are dangerous.

I think this book is scary because reptiles are dangerous. I donít like poisonous snakes, but I like reading about them. Some snakes could be poisonous or they could bite. The names of the snakes and turtles and lizards sound cool. I also like the book because there are cool reptiles in it. Did you know that black snakes stick together to be warm? They do. I learned that in the book.

I will recommend this book to somebody who likes reptiles. Because if somebody loves reptiles a lot they could read the book. Kids that are scared of poisonous things should not get this book because it could be scary.
